We stopped in here on a whim and found it very enjoyable. There was an exhibits of quilts by local quilt makers, antique tractors for kids to see, exhibits about farm life and tools through the years and how agriculture in Vermont has changed over time. We especially enjoyed the film about the families who established and maintained the farm... More

The 1890 farm house and the working farm are well worth the visit. The guides were uniformly pleasant and informed, and the tour through the barns was very well done. This is time well spent.

Mount Tom offers great views of the town of Woodstock. The Billings Farm and Museum has a beautiful trail system and helpful information center.

It had been recommended to me to go to this museum to see the movie on the background of the Marsh-Billings-Rockefeller's families. I had no interest in the animals or farm. I was pleased to find out that I didn't have to pay the admission price in order to do this. The half hour film was very good and informative.

A great place to visit and bring visitors to see a working farm and historic buildings. It is enjoyable at anytime of the year, but at Christmas, the farmhouse is decorated beautifully, and children especially will enjoy making candles or orange pomanders. Be sure to take a hayride during the summer months or a sleigh ride in winter. But take... More

We spent a full day here a few weeks ago making butter, learning about chickens, sheep, and cows. We even got to make wool balls out of sheeps' wool. It was a lot of fun. A great family activity.

You can really spend a good part of the day here. We loved getting so close to the cows and being on the property. It's really beautiful. We also did a tour of the farm house which was really fascinating. Marsha was a fantastic tour guide and also a lovely person. She was full of information about not only the... More
